Who Would Be Free, Themselves Must Strike the Blow

Charismatic Megafauna Live

18 Jan 2019

Join us for the opening of the gathering Who Would Be Free Themselves Must Strike the Blow with a music act by Charismatic Megafauna.
Charismatic Megafauna is Jenny Moore, Georgia Twigg and Susannah Worth, a dance-punk trio from London. They want to light up the dancefloor and destroy it. Offering a potent mix of girl-gang chants, three-person drum offensives and mutant synth freakouts, they refract their feminism through an absurdist lens – party music for politically-minded people.
This event is part of the gathering Who Would Be Free, Themselves Must Strike the Blow. See the full programme here.
Free. Booking required
